Time for a change of pace.
Yuugo Hachiken flees the hustle and bustle of city life to enroll at Oezo Agricultural High School. At first he's just trying to outrun his problems, but instead he finds a place for himself in this quaint rural community. Between the classrooms and cowpatties, the boy becomes a man.
The discovery of a brick oven on campus prompts the only logical response from the students of Ooezo Agricultural High School: a pizza party City-boy Hachiken has been nominated to oversee the process, but he quickly discovers how much work is involved in securing each and every ingredient that goes into making the perfect pizza. United by a common hunger, students from every discipline contribute the necessary flour, cheese, meat, and other toppings. Everyone is waiting expectantly-but can Hachiken deliver?
